    @Angela_Court  I have added a ticket for you and tied you to the improvement.  Very nice real world data you showed.  Important to note that properties of materials change based on forming technique and size, besides just alloy and temper.

    I am also interested to know when custom materials feature will be available. Thanks.

    I would strongly suggest the possibility to add custom materials instead of getting bogged down with trying to implement every conceivable standard. Often we don't want to tie people down to one specific standard anyway. For many general purpose constructions we simply use the notation S275, S355 etc. What we really mean is that, please use a structural steel roughly compliant with EN 10025 that has a yield strength around this. S355 = 355 N/m².

    I would like to have my custom materials as a Featurescript "table".
